Need shade quickly for an upcoming river trip? Choose from the
selection of in-stock River Sombreros below. All offer cool shade for
your raft, stability in wind, quick
stowing, and easy mounting to decks or frames. Sharkskin is an economical 6.5 oz fabric while Sunbrella is a premium 9.25 oz canvas.
We recommend 6' Sombreros for rafts 14' and under so your Sombrero can comfortably fold onto the back of your raft without overhanging. 8' lengths provide more shade for longer rafts. The folded-down lengths are 64" from the mounting point for 6' Sombreros and 74" for 8' Sombreros. Mounting points are typically 6-8" behind the oar locks. To select the width, measure center point to center point for frame mounting or just inside your oar locks for deck or slide track mounting. Everyone's setup is a little different, so we recommend checking yours to find the size that fits your raft. See Choosing a Sombrero
for more help with sizing and fabric choices.

Sold as pairs complete with stainless steel hardware. 1 5/8" fits NRS and similar diameter frames, and 2" fits RBW, DRE, and commercial frames.
